Valley artists and poets asked to submit works for juried show

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley’s College of Fine Arts and the South Texas Border Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists are calling for submissions for an art and poetry show entitled “Nature of the Valley.”

Artists and poets can submit works for review by Dec. 7. Selection of works will be announced via e-mail by Dec.28, and selected works are to be delivered to the venue on Jan. 18.

Submissions are open to artists and poets over the age of 18, who live, or have previously lived in the Rio Grande Valley, including Winter Texans and UTRGV students of any age. The theme of the visual art and poetry submissions must have something to do with nature in the Valley.

All media, two- and three-dimensional, (except photography) may be submitted.

It is a juried art show, so artwork must be gallery ready and artists have option to list their work for sale.

Up to three submissions per artist and poet will be accepted for review. The exhibit will be open to the public Feb. 8 through March 15, 2019, in the Charles & Dorothy Clark Gallery on the UTRGV Edinburg Campus.
